MySQL is one of the most widely used database control systems out there. A database is a set of cells with data which are arranged in tables and the control system is the piece of software that links the info to a script application. As an illustration, a forum stores all posts, usernames, avatars etc in a database and every time a website visitor opens a specific thread, the forum script connects to the database and “calls” the content that should be displayed on a particular page. MySQL is very popular because of its terrific efficiency, simplicity and the fact that it can function with lots of popular scripting languages such as PHP, Python, Perl, and so forth. All dynamic websites which are designed with a script-driven app require some type of database and a lot of the most widely used ones like Joomla™, Moodle, Mambo and WordPress employ MySQL.
